Good news for those who love chocolates, as a study says regular consumption of chocolate is associated with better brain function.
According to the study, which was published in the Appetite newspaper, chocolate consumption was found to be associated with better performance of cognitive function in the brain.
Researchers looked at the data collected during an earlier study that was held in New York, measuring chocolate taking and risk from cardiovascular disease factors, Gazette Express reports.
The participants underwent a series of tests designed to measure their cognitive function. The researchers found that chocolate consumption was associated with a better test performance.
Researchers suggest that regular consumption of chocolate helps protect against the decline in cognitive function in the brain, which is related to age.
